Russia is going in With everything they got because they know that British and US SF will be killed in this push for Aleppo.

Russia needs a Force to reccon With so that that it wont be possible for the US to retaliate without experianceing great looses on their part.

Russia also this week sent a unknown number of MIG 31s to Syria to act as AWACS and ariel protectors.

Russia also just sent a fleet of the bombers (The bear) and threee air refulers of the coast of Norway, and they were heading for Syria.

The fleet contained 8 air Crafts. Three Bombers, Three refulers and fighter Escorts.


At present time Russia have about 30 + combat ships of the coast of Syria.

No they didn't. The original poster of the pics/info fell for a hoax. The rumour simply spread from his Twitter and became "fact".


SyrianMilitaryCap. ?@syrianmilitary 5h5 hours ago @syrianmilitary I don't understand why some take so much of their time to fake such photos it's just sad



according to my friend -a Syrian pilot on Syria Air- this is not the tower of Hemiem airport so there is no Mig-31 deployed

The same thing happened back in 2015 with the claims that Syria had received MiG-31s. They didn't but you can see how a rumour gets out of hand.

There is nothing unusual in that route. They last used the Atlantic/Strait of Gibraltar route in November 2015 to launch cruise missiles over the Mediterranean.

It looks likely that Iran or Iraq didn't give them overflight or cruise missile launch permission this time like they did back in 2015. It is likely that Iran didn't want a repeat of last year when some of the air launched cruise missiles malfunctioned over their territory. The easiest option for the Russians was international airspace all the way to the launch point in the Mediterranean.

See following link for the NATO QRA activity as the bombers and tankers passed through the various flight information regions in international airspace near to Norway, UK and Portugal. Radio enthusiasts were busy monitoring the Russian HF Voice and Morse Code activity from the Tu-95MS Bear H and IL-78 Midas tankers.

Tu-160s first flew the Strait of Gibraltar route back in November 2015.

Sorry, but that is non-sense. In regards to warships the Admiral Kuznetsov carrier group from the Northern Fleet consists of
Carrier Admiral Kuznetsov, Cruiser Peter the Great, Destroyers Severomorsk and Kulakov.

From the Black Sea Fleet there is Frigate Admiral Grigorovich

You can see the movements of Russian Warships from the Black Sea Fleet through the Turkish Straits. Nothing goes through the straits without getting logged.

Foreign Warships Bosphorus 2016

That is why your claim of all those warships is completely incorrect. There is only a few Black Sea Fleet frigates / missile boats on rotation. The majority of the movements from the Black Sea to the Mediterranean and back are the amphibious landing ships that shuttle back and forth between the Black Sea and Syria bringing in supplies.

The number of actual Russian combat vessels/warships hasn't really changed in recent years. It certainly isn't the 30 plus figure even if you add in a couple of submarines.

The Russians can try to taunt the US all it wants. But when Mrs. Clinton takes office, she's going to pound Putin into a pulp. She's always at least eleven steps ahead of him.



Seriously! Why you talking like this? This is not a computer game. If there is a world war 3, it will be the last war, and at the end of it, America, Russia, china etc, will not be standing tall.

I hate this patriotism for your country BS. This is what causes conflict , because, like you, people are conditioned from a young age to be patriotic for your country.

Its obvious something is coming. Its obvious that the west, esp America want to start a conflict with Russia. From the fake news, to the trying to blame Russia for the emails. The west are the bad guys here, and have been for a long time now
